I'm sorry that's dissapointing that it might be BE treated.

It's a pretty ring and to get an idea of it's selling value search Ebay for similar rings that have been sold. Just keep in mind that a jeweler will give you scrap gold price if he/she just doesn't want to buy the ring. A lot of brick and mortar stores keep a low inventory so they are not in the market to buy rings to resell unless it is an item that they know they can sell fast at a nice profit. As an example I had a jeweler offer me $700 for a diamond ring. The next jeweler offered me $3500. One jeweler wanted the ring, the other did not.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe an appraiser would be unlikely to have the equipment required to detect beryllium treatment. Maybe he was just being very conservative?
I've seen Be treated and untreated yellow sapphires next to each other, and the only difference was price!

Some be-diffusion can be Identified with standard gemological equipment, but some needs a mass spectrometer.

They didn’t know for sure if it was treated with beryllium. Just that it could have been treated with it but lab report would be needed to confirm.
